Terribly sorry for the incredibly late response (to almost all comments). I know my hosting has died (ages ago).

I have a copy of the theme (although, even without peering into the archive, I'm guessing the theme is quite obsolete by now, and thus won't work well/at all with more recent builds of GNOME.

The link posted some time ago;

Still works.

If anyone has hosting, please feel free to send me/comment the URL, I'll be sure to update the "standard" link, so people don't have to wade through comments.

I hope to get back to working on this/themes again soon :) - Dec 09 2010

Somehow, this doesn't come up on my screen as unified (neither on my machine or in your screenshots) - there is a somewhat distinct border between metacity and gtk

As long as GNOME's appearance continues to be reminiscent of Windows ME, you really can't blame people for trying to escape it, even if that means generating poor imitations of prior art.

Posting unconstructive criticism of people's best efforts, rather than improving your own or moving on and continuing your search for artwork that suits your machine, seems to me like a complete and utter waste of time. - Mar 18 2008

Wondering the same - I clearly recall having used it myself ages ago. I'm mostly hoping there's an emerald port up, but if not I'll probably make one.

The truth is, I cheated. If you look closely, you'll see that my icons and text is also transparent, simply because I had to use Beryl to get the job done (which is stupid, honestly).
I've been googling, as one would, and found several references to the variable "GTK_MENUBAR_ACTIVE_OPACITY" for instance, but I have been entirely unable to get it to function, nor have I found it mentioned by anyone but the macmenu users/devs.

No offense, but why is it so common for people to post backgrounds/wallpapers as screenshots for GDM themes? Any genius (again, no offense) can change the background on the GDM - so it, to me anyway, seems somewhat useless to see the background only, since it's the combination of background and arranging of elements that makes up a nice GDM..
Anywho, just a thought.

I do like the background though :-) - Sep 13 2007

Small correction; Indeed it seems you show off different default desktops from various distros.. I stand somewhat corrected. But again, it pretty much just shows what bad-ass wallpapers linux distros sport compared to the proprietary alternatives. :) - Jul 19 2007
Nice job, it's pretty damn smooth.
But I'm starting to wonder, with all these "Go Linux" promotions that, like this one, show off mainly various desktops that people have used - if it might not be a cool idea to make a similarly "crisp" (reflections, composition etc.) demonstration of the diversity of Linux, by showing off pimped KDE, GNOME, XFCE desktops, in a size that allows viewers to see the interface and determine whether they are impressed? I think some might be "impressed" if they, having been appropriately dissapointed by the dirty default theme in Ubuntu (no offense, since the user would have to be oblivious to themes), they might go "wow" at a pimped KDE desktop.

Just a thought, really.
Again; nice job. - Jul 19 2007

Why are you asking me what I am saying? Need I repeat myself?

I understand what you are saying, and I partly agree that the arrangement of logos and such is better in Inspiration.
However, I maintain that showcasing the beauty of Linux "out of the box" is a far more interesting, apppealing and worth-while in respect to Microsoft's patent nonsense. This site is already stuffed with "look how *I* like my desktop to look!" shots. - Jun 23 2007
I like this better than the Inspiration with ubuntu; simply because this features included/standard wallpapers; which means it's authentic. Inspiration seemed to showcase some, beautiful, but 3rd party wallpaper. - Jun 22 2007

I completely agree (even though I'm on Ubuntu). In my opinion, the site badly needs a revamp in the form of sub-sections. It should be possible to apply some tags to your content; anything else is... well, very "90's" ;)

Searching for distribution-specific artwork should, for instance, be a possibility at this day and age.
Should a rework come, I just really hope it doesn't end up like Deviantart... Worst website navigation *ever*.

Other than that; great work. - Jun 21 2007

You're absolutely right; there *are* some Aqua elements in the screenshots. However, I have a feeling this might be because they aren't entirely done with Leopard. If not, it's a really poor job on their end, since people have been scratching their heads about Tiger's lack of consistency in appearance for a long time now, and one would think the point of this new look was to unify it all again.

Thanks for the heads up. - Jun 16 2007
Hey. Really great job on the theme.
However, as I use a Mac (Tiger) on a daily basis, I quickly noticed that with this theme, as well as the original OSX-mod theme, the buttons are simply far too big. This turned my attention to the few and low-resolution screenshots I've seen of Leopard so far - It seems very little Aqua is being left in there. Apart from the scroll-bars, I've been unable to spot a single aqua element (buttons particularly) - although I haven't been hunting for them either. This made me think that perhaps you would like to collaborate or start on your own, as I have, on changing the button look to that of Tiger/iTunes, since it seems aqua buttons are out. It's merely a suggestion, and I will get on it myself.
In any case, good job - keep it up. - Jun 15 2007
